Players have found a new rotation exploit in Fortnite Season 6 that has them flying across the map. Here’s how to do it.
Fortnite has always been prone to exploits – some more broken than others. Most players will remember that sand tunneling was disabled for the bulk of Fortnite Season 5 due to an exploit that made players invisible.
Season 6 is no exception. Players have already found a way to farm unlimited Gold Bars if you don’t care too much about your stats. You can even keep your health ticking up for an entire match if you have a friend by your side for another exploit.
This time, players have found a way to combine rotational items like chickens, Hop Rock Dualies, and Easter Eggs with a simple door edit to send them flying across the map.
Fortnite Door edit exploit
As you can see from the video above, the door exploit is simple. All you need to do is have a low-gravity item like a chicken, Hop Rock Dualies, or Easter Egg. After that, you just need to edit a door, open it, jump on top, and close it.
The one caveat to this exploit is that you have to make sure you’re facing in the right direction. The door will send you flying away from the direction that it’s facing, so make sure you angle yourself correctly.
SypherPK covered this strategy in a recent video, testing all of the different mobility items in the game. As he said, the exploit seems to work better with female characters than it does with male characters.
The Easter Egg in Fortnite is a seasonal item, and will probably leave the game next week. The removal of this item will make the exploit far less common, as you will only be able to use Hop Fish, Exotic Dualies, or a chicken.
This exploit is on the fence of being problematic. It probably won’t ruin the game for people, but is undoubtedly unintended. We’ll have to see if Epic take action on this one.
